provided by wikipedia EN

Snake blenny (Ophidion barbatum) is a fish species in the family Ophidiidae. Widespread in the Eastern Atlantic from the southern England to Senegal and the northern Mediterranean Sea. It is a marine subtropical demersal fish, up to 25 cm long.[2]

Parasites

As most fish, the Snake blenny harbours a variety of parasites. One of them is the diclidophorid monogenean Flexophora ophidii. The species was described in 1962 by Maria Prost and Louis Euzet from the coasts of France in the Mediterranean Sea [3] and found 58 years later off Algeria.[4]
